Waterton Park Hotel Wedding

— The Waterton Park Hotel in West Yorkshire is one of the most breathtaking sights in all of England, let alone Yorkshire. At the heart of the valley, among the beautiful hills, sits a small lake with an island at its heart. Upon this lake sits the antique stone hotel that travelers from all over the world come to see.

Not only is Waterton Park Hotel in Wakefield, West Yorkshire an amazing wedding venue, but I’m also the recommended wedding photographer.

This luxury hotel and wedding venue is perfect for those who are seeking a luxury-meets-rustic aesthetic for their wedding day. The surrounding lake and lush green hills provide wedding goers with awe-inspiring views, and will create wedding pictures that will be the envy of friends and family for years to come. Waterton Park Hotel is truly a sight to behold, and one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the whole of Yorkshire. It is a real honour to be the recommended photographer at Waterton Park which is one of the best wedding venues in Yorkshire. I have a fantastic relationship with Pauline and Amy who are the wedding planners there. I was so lucky to be asked to photograph Amy’s Mums wedding at Waterton Park

Below are a handful of wedding photographs I have taken at Waterton Park Hotel throughout the year A variety of summer weddings and winter weddings.

Waterton Park Hotel History

In 1767 Thomas Waterton began to build the Waterton house that still stands to this very day. It is now known as the Waterton Park Hotel. In 1805 Thomas Waterton died leaving him the heir of the Walton estate where he resided there for a couple of years.

In 1821 Charles Walton began to build a wall around the estate to protect the wildlife inside – the first nature reserve ever known.

The wall took a whopping 5 years to build; the cost was £9000. In today’s money that would be a very hefty sum of £2.5 million. The wall was 3 miles long, separating the park from the landscape surrounding it.

In the 1940s, and again in the early 1950s and 60s the hall was a maternity home.

Sir David Attenborough has stated that “Walton Hall is an extremely important site in the history of nature conservation worldwide. It is, arguably, the first tract of land anywhere in modern times to be protected, guarded, and maintained as a nature reserve.”
